Friday Meme’s ~ The Mysterious Affair at Styles
Since there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.
Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
Who poisoned the wealthy Emily Inglethorpe, and how did the murderer penetrate and escape from her locked bedroom? Suspects abound in the quaint village of Styles St. Mary–from the heiress’s fawning new husband to her two stepsons, her volatile housekeeper, and a pretty nurse who works in a hospital dispensary. Making his unforgettable debut, the brilliant Belgian detective Hercule Poirot is on the case. The key to the success of this style of detective novel, writes Elizabeth George in her Introduction, lies in how the author deals with both the clues and the red herrings, and it has to be said that no one bettered Agatha Christie at this game.
Not started this one yet but it will be my first time with Agatha Christie and I am a bit nervous…lol.
The intense interest aroused in the public by what was known at the time as “The Styles Case” has now somewhat subsided.
Well, I know I am curious to find out about the case the public seems interested in. 🙂
The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday Teaser but you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) to get your teaser.
Poirot’s face did not betray a trace of whether he was disappointed or otherwise. He merely remarked:
“Good, we will leave that and pass on. Have you any reason to believe that your mistress was likely to take a sleeping powder last night?
No clue what is going on but I am guessing the murder has happened and it was the mistress that died. 🙂
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week we are asked a question to answer so it reminds me a bit of FF and so I thought it made a good fit to my other Friday Memes.
Do you read historical fiction?
Historical mysteries yes, but just straight up historical fiction not so much. I have but it’s not a preferred genre so it would have to be about something I was really interested in.
